Wolverines Are Favored In Butler Relays Tonight

Allen's Illness
Weakens Team
In High Jump
Michigan Relay Teams Out
To Avenge Early Losses
To Indiana Runners
INDIANAPOLIS, March 18.-(Spe-
cial to the Daily) -The University of
Michigan's undefeated track team
arrived here tonight to defend its
Butler Relays team title tomorrow
night in the Butler University field
house and climax a successful in-
door season.
The Wolverines annexed the title
in 1933 and have clung to it ever
There seems little indication that
any of the score or more of teams
collecting here will be able to break
the tenacious grip of the Hoytmen
on the coveted Relays crown.
Michigan Is Favored
Fresh from rough-shod triumphs
over Big Ten and Illinois Relays op-
position, the Michigan machine is
rated a sure thing to continue dom-
ination of the event with their fifth
consecutive win.
There is only one fly in the Mich-
igan ointnent. Their ace Negro high
jumper, Wes Allen, is in'the Univer-
sity Health Service with a throat in-
fection which will keep him down for
at least another week. Otherwise the
Michigan squad is a full strength.
Chance For Revenge{
Tomorrow night's affair gives two
Michigan relay quartets their chance
to avenge themselves on Univer-
sity of Indiana outfits which nosed
them out at the Illinois Relays two
weeks ago.
The Wolverines finished in the
place spot behind the Hoosiers in the
distance medley at Illinois when a
bad baton pass put them under a
protically unsurmountable hanoi
cap. The Michigan two-mile four-
some lined up behind the eight ball
when Bill Buchanan took a flyer over
Charles Cunkle of Indiana to land
face down on the track, but still man-
aged to eke out a fourth place in the
List Medley Runners
The Hoyt forces will run Ross
Faulkner, Tom Jester, Ralph Sch-
warzkopf and Harold Davidson in
that order through the 440, 880, three-
quarters and mile of the distance
Jester, Davidson, and Schwarzkopf,
augmented by Bill Buchanan will run
an 880 apiece in the two-mile relay.
Charlie Hoyt named Waldo Abbot,
Doug Hayes, Harvey Clarke and
Faulkner to do the quarter mile
chores in the one-mile relay.
Favored to win and place in both
hurdle events is Michigan's Gedeon-
Kelley, Inc. Gedeon mopped up the
barriers at Chicago lat week with
embarrassing ease, while his black-
haired mate, Kelley, was standing on
the side-lines after a mishap in the
semi-finals excluded him from the
final running.
Big Bill Watson, "the one man
track team" looks good for points in
the sprint, high and broad jumps, and
invulnerable as ever in his forte, the
shot put.
ELJZABETH, N.J., March 18.-(IP)
--Peerless Glenn Cunningham, that
machine of foot racers, once again
defeated Gene Venzke and Archie
San Romani tonight, winning a spe-
cial three-quarter mile run high-
lighting the New Jersey A.A.U. Indoor
Track Championships. His time was
3 minutes 10.9 seconds.

Football Hangover.. .
SINCE the late, lamented (from aj
sports writer's point of view) foot-
ball season, this department has been
sadly minus its contributors. The
storm that broke over Michigan foot-
ball brought with it a deluge of opin-
ions, complaints and suggestions; and
for a time, our desk resembled a for-
um for polemical discussions on good
and bad coaches. But with the calm
came a painful lull. Even the critics,
who always provided a convenient
guidepost, withdrew their darts and
left us tapping our own meager re-
sources. Not, however, until Falstaff
himself forsook this pillar for the
meditative calm of the Student Sen-
ate did the situation become really
Perhaps we haven't lent proper en-
couragement to the hurrying trade.
If neglect has been the cause, then
let's remedy that now by inviting any
of you with sports squibs, literary or
otherwise, to shoot them in.
That Man Again ...
a piece for which we are duly
grateful. It is a sports column, The
Pulse, from the Boston Transcript of
March{9, written by George C. Carens,
praising in no uncertain terms Michi-
gan's new football coach, Fritz Cris-
ler. The general idea contained there-
in is that the Wolverines made a hap-
py choice, procured an athletic gem,
to borrow one of Carens' expressions.
In part, the story reads:
Had you been among the 50-
odd who lent an ear to Crisler's
remarks at the Michigan lun-
cheon you would have appreciat-
ed his cordiality and sincerity as
lie touched upon his reactions to
a recent Ann Arbor visit. The
impressions he received of the
material with which he will have
to mold the Michigan team next
fall; his feelings towards the staff
that will strive to lift the Wolver-
ines from the doldrums; his depth
of feeling towards the coaches'
attitude toward the game of foot-
ball all sank deeply into the
minds of his listeners.
Olympic Intrigue ...
AS AN afterthought, this change in
dates of the 1940 Olympics has a
deeper significance than- we first real-
ized. For example, the vote was split
between the United States, England
and France-democratic nations-on
one hand and Japan, Italy and Ger-
many-dictatorships-on the other.
Now our peaceful informer, always
paying rapt attention to international
subterfuge, insists the latter three
nations are tired of being drubbed in
